Connecting iPhone and ruko on a sprint mobile hotspot

Both iPhone 6s and Roku premier are connected to the same network on my sprint mobile hotspot. however they do not see each other so I cannot use the iPhone to control Roku. no devices are found when I do the search on both Roku and iPhone Suggestions. Once again, both devices are on the same WiFi network. Internet through sprint mobile hotspot which is also my WiFi router. Please help!!

Re: Connecting iPhone and ruko on a sprint mobile hotspot

Usually that means there's a setting on the Wi-Fi/Hotspot preventing devices from talking to one another (it's a security feature). Need to disable it. I would contact Sprint to see how to do that as the setting is on the hotspot itself. Usually setting is called "Wi-Fi Isolation"
Router - ASUS RT-AC68U
ISP - TWC - 50 Mbps/5 Mbps
